London, Mar 22 (ANI): Former News International chief executive Rebekah Brooks has reportedly been questioned by police about payments to officials at Britain's Ministry of Defence.
London's Metropolitan Police is said to have questioned her about information turned over by News Corporation's Management and Standards Committee.
Brooks, 41, a former editor of The Sun, was first arrested by detectives in July on suspicion of phone hacking and corruption, days after she quit News International.
She answered bail today after being rearrested last week with her racehorse trainer husband Charlie on suspicion of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice, The Daily Star reports.
According to the report, Brook's lawyer, Stephen Parkinson, recently said evidence given by Metropolitan Police Deputy Assistant Commissioner Sue Akers at the Leveson Inquiry had brought "much prejudicial material" into the public domain.
Brooks' relations with top police officers and politicians have been under scanner in recent weeks after it emerged that she "fostered" a police horse when it retired from active service in 2008.
She is reported to have paid food and vet bills until the animal, called Raisa, was rehoused with a police officer in 2010, months before fresh investigations began into illegal activities at the News of the World. (ANI)
